Survey says...demand for Apple iPhone 6 still strong
According to brokerage firm Piper Jaffray, demand continues to rise for the Apple iPhone 6. A survey conducted by the brokerage firm finds that 40% of respondents plan on making a purchase of the 4.7-inch handset sometime in the next three months. That compares to the 37% of those surveyed who planned on buying the iPhone 6 within three months after the phone was released last September. Before Apple released the iPhone 6, 33% of those asked were going to buy it within three months.

The rising numbers for the iPhone 6 at this point after the phone's launch, indicates strong demand for the model. For example, at this time last year, the percentage of those surveyed who had their eyes set on a purchase of the Apple iPhone 5s, had dropped from 50% to 44%.

Adding all iPhone models together, 50% of the 1004 people surveyed by Piper Jaffray said that they would be purchasing an Apple branded smartphone within three months. 43% said that they were going to purchase an Android powered handset during the next quarter. The data was revealed by Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster.


The other day, we told you how lead times on the online Apple Store had dropped sharply, leading us to state that supplies had finally caught up with demand. Munster and his crew checked in with 80 brick and mortar Apple Stores last week, and found that 78% had the iPhone 6 in stock, compared to 56% the previous week.

"Not angry", but the empathy and sympathy of sorriness......

Envy, not jealousy. Jealousy is justified, envy isn't.

If Samsung fans are angry because of it, they need a reality check. I love my Samsung phone and personally wouldn't enjoy an iPhone as much, but I don't take it personally that other people enjoy the iPhone. It's a phone, not some holy book. Calm down PA lunatics.

No, their friend(that's me) switched from apple to android. I spend more money than all my friends who have apple devices because i also buy atleast one high end headset everytime i get a new phone.

You are also one of those people who think that an iphone is a status symbol. An unlocked nexus phone and a good headset will set you back $900.

Maybe they just prefer iOS over Android. If they really cared about status symbols, why even use Android at all and why start caring about status now after all these years?

They were apple users,they went to android briefly because they felt that sammy was becoming the next big thing but it didn't so they returned....I switched to android at the same time but i didn't switch back because i enjoyed the customizaion, it was worth more than having a status symbol and also because i didn't spend too much on ios apps.

I do believe the demand is strong but its due to people just wanting something that works. As for me I just bought a Sprint Nexus 6 popped in my Verizon iPhone Sim in it and haven't looked back at my iPhone 6 plus. I love the NEXUS phone.

wow jeter you for real, you have for the last year been a hardcore apple fanboy and know you switched to the nexus 6 what was it thats keeping you on it, speed look functionality ?

I kept my iPhone for the ease of use. No one can beat that. I love the feel and screen of the Nexus. I love the way it feels but the biggest thing is NO BLOATWARE!!! from greedy verizon. It was a beach to get a Nexus 6 from any carrier with out a contract. One Sprint rep finally caved in and sold it to me for full price. I can't believed it works on Verizon. Full LTE and all

Sheeps even though poor buy more iPhone just becz they love to own a phone with higher price and low specs as they thing it shows they are rich. But real techies look over them as Donkeys and Sheeps rather than rich.

there are some who like to live their life as they choose to be. there are some who wants simple device to do what they want, when they want it. people who think and judge otherwise are ignorant. now one guy goes buys a leica m9 60th edition for 18k + with 10k lenses.. a camera which has no lcd screen lol.. ignorant people will say, he.she could have gotten a canon for cheap with 100 times better specs.. but in the end of the day, m9 takes mch better picture then some high end shooters.

Maybe the so called sheeps buy an iPhone because they think it's a status symbol but real techies don't look over them as donkeys/sheep,real techies don't care about others' phones.

No my friend, most people here claim to be having so many high end phones. they think what they have is the best and what others are using are not. and they like old preachers used to convert people, they are trying to do that.. i use ios and android both. i like them both, but what i dont like is haters. what anyone love, is not status symbol, what status is that? a billionaire using an iphone and a college student using one :/

But there are people who think that iphone is a status symbol and there are people who think that android is only for those who are more intelligent...both of them are wrong. There are android phones that are overpriced and android is very very easy/almost as easy to use as the iphone...rooting is also fairly easy.

i agree.. thats why i use both. its not about status or fanboyish.for people who use it for that reason, let them be so. its just what you love to use ;use it. life is too short. No use listening to others when you knw whats worth while to you.
